Stewardship is the main issue for me. It only became an issue when I learned from the OP that BW is ceasing commercial operations (I always turn off notifications for all of my programs/apps; I learned of it here).
I already owned the majority of the BW modules in paper. Then I bought them in Logos. Then, I migrated to BW away from Logos (all of this as a Windows user). Now I'm worried that BW10 might not work in a VM in a decade. If I was convinced that it would work, I wouldn't even consider migrating to another platform again, this time to Acc.
I wasn't even asking for myself at the beginning. Don's input started me thinking about a parallel between first time buyers and those who bought Acc for a certain module, function, or workflow, but who otherwise spend the vast majority of their time in BW. In my case, I spend 2-8 hours/day in BW, and 10 minutes a day in Acc (on average, over the last three years).
I also think it will be mutually beneficial for those who are allowed to take advantage of the crossover package. I do find that the more I use Acc, the more I see how excellent it is. On the other hand, BW users will be losing some valued modules and functions - in my case, if BW eventually stops working, my user lexicon, the unpointed HB with the same functionality as the pointed one, and rapid reading capabilities that I worked out on my own, partly in response to Acc unanchoring instant details from its word on the iPad. So, a complete crossover is not all good. We BW users will have to accept loss also.
I also hope you know how much I appreciate your help on the Forums in general.
Edit: - mutually beneficial because as we learn the strengths of the program, we will promote it, i.e., promote what we know. Also, we will buy other Acc modules.
